Montvale, NJ, November 20, 2017 -Micronet Enertec Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQCM: MICT), a developer and manufacturer of rugged computers, tablets and computer-based systems for the commercial Mobile Resource Management (MRM) market and for the Aerospace and Defense (A&D) markets, today announced financial results for the third quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2017.

 

“We are extremely pleased to see the growing backlog and we believe this demonstrates the market’s acceptance of our advanced technology and solutions,” said David Lucatz, Chief Executive Officer of MICT. “Our Backlog at the end of Q3 stands at $20.5 million and continues to grow and drive revenue growth. This growth is mainly driven by Micronet, our MRM subsidiary. We continue to experience strong demand from the MRM market and we believe that this is mainly attributed to the implementation of the Electronic Logging Device (ELD) mandate and Micronet’s ability to introduce advanced products and solutions at competitive prices. The MRM Division has a strong future pipeline and a growing number of customers are evaluating its new products in the field. Based on our backlog and forecasts, we maintain our previous guidance of $25 million to $28 million in revenue for 2017. Micronet also experienced an improvement in profitability and Q3 EBIDTA was close to breakeven,” stated David Lucatz, Chief Executive Officer of Micronet Enertec Technologies.

 

In Q3, MICT continued to implement its strategy to combine additional Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) components in its product offerings. Micronet's Guardian System Design (GSD) is a cloud based SaaS platform, which enables remote management of Micronet's products while on the move via Firmware Over the Air (FOTA) updates. The GSD license has started generating recurring yearly revenues which we believe will improve gross margins and customer retention.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

 

In addition to providing financial measurements based on generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America, or GAAP, we provide additional financial metrics that are not prepared in accordance with GAAP, or non-GAAP financial measures. Management uses non-GAAP financial measures, in addition to GAAP financial measures, to understand and compare operating results across accounting periods, for financial and operational decision making, for planning and forecasting purposes and to evaluate our financial performance.

 

Management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures reflect our ongoing business in a manner that allows for meaningful comparisons and analysis of trends in our business, as they exclude expenses and gains that are not reflective of our ongoing operating results. Management also believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful information to investors in understanding and evaluating our operating results and future prospects in the same manner as management and in comparing financial results across accounting periods and to those of peer companies.

 

The non-GAAP financial measures do not replace the presentation of our GAAP financial results and should only be used as a supplement to, not as a substitute for, our financial results presented in accordance with GAAP.

 

The non-GAAP adjustments, and the basis for excluding them from non-GAAP financial measures, are outlined below:

 

  Amortization of acquired intangible assets - We are required to amortize the intangible assets, included in our GAAP financial statements, related to our acquisition of Micronet in 2012 and the Vehicle Business of Beijer in 2014. The amount of an acquisition’s purchase price allocated to intangible assets and term of its related amortization are unique to these transactions. The amortization of acquired intangible assets are non-cash charges. We believe that such changes do not reflect our operational performance. Therefore, we exclude amortization of acquired intangible assets to provide investors with a consistent basis for comparing pre- and post-transaction operating results.

 

  Stock-based compensation - Stock based compensation consists of share based awards granted to certain individuals. They are non-cash and affected by our historical stock prices which are irrelevant to forward-looking analyses and are not necessarily linked to our operational performance.
     
  Amortization of note discount - These expenses are non-cash and are related to amortization of discount of the note purchase agreements with YA II. Such expenses do not reflect our on-going operations.
